The Next Generation Leahy

Last night's program at Hoover in Lakeside was the Next Generation Leahy from Canada--what a talented family. Oldest child performing was 17, 2 boys 14 and 15 who are now taller than their parents, a 12 year old girl, 10 year old boy and 8 year old girl. Wonderful talent, and great stage presence. All play the fiddle, and then each has a special talent--drums, cello, accordion, piano, and all do a very athletic French-Canadian step dance. This family has the longest legs I've ever seen.
Adele – fiddle, piano, cello, step-dance, vocals
Gregory – fiddle, accordion, piano, step-dance, vocals, drums
Angus – fiddle, piano, guitar, step-dance, vocals
Cecilia – fiddle, piano, step-dance, vocals, mandolin
Joseph – fiddle, step-dance, accordion, piano, vocals
Evelyn – fiddle, step-dance, piano, vocals

Imagine trying to get this many kids to practice. And there were 3 more back state--two of whom came out and did a quick step-dance. They also have a YouTube channel which shows them performing together in their home.
